shrouded morning moon i dump the garbage

This one is interesting Owen. The imagery is disparate (not to be confused with desperate). I'm reading it as I would read a classical Japanese Haiku, which may be a mistake.

I'm not sure I can draw the images together for that ah Ha, moment. Is the hint in "shrouded"? Or maybe I shouldn't be reading it this way?

in anticipation of the next four months...

hi ed, hope all is well with you.
that snow sounds cold--and depressing.
it was mid-70s here today.

thanks for the poem,

hi patrick,

well, this is as it happened last wednesday
morning (trash day). it operates on many levels.
it was a glow of moon just barely hidden behind
clouds--very beautiful. and here i was, dumping
garbage. the garbage too going out of view--
an in and out kind of mirroring between the moon and
a most earthly task. it just struck me as odd and
almost ironic.

anyway, thanks for investing your energy here.

Thanks Bill.

Your experience reminds me of one that I recently had. I went out after a passing rain and discovered some thievery.

at the bottom
of the trashcan the raccoon forgets
the moon
